Concern Christmas Collection

Bundoran’s 34th Concern Christmas collection was once again a great success. The weather was dry which helped greatly. On the street €2238.10 was collected by the 32 volunteers. A further €1790 was handed in in cheques, donations, boxes of coins etc. So a total of €4028.10 has been lodged to Concern from this small community.

A huge thank you to all the volunteer collectors and to all of you who donated. Wishing you all good health, peace and joy in 2019.
